After tonight's Orange Bowl, maybe the Big East should keep their automatic BCS bid, and the ACC should lose theirs!

(Clemson still sucks.)

Syracuse beat West Virginia > West Virginia killed Clemson > Clemson won the ACC > Syracuse is going to the ACC > Thus, Syracuse is the ACC CONFERENCE CHAMPS! :D:P

(gotta love flawed logic like this)

Oh, and I'm nominating this for POTD or at least CCSLC Pat on the Back Pretty Good Post Award for referencing the EDSBS 8-Ball meme. Any takers for seconding one of the two?

I guess I'll second both.

The Big East does have 4 BCS wins in the past 6 years, compared to 1 BCS wins for the ACC. The only problem is 3 of those wins are by West Virginia, who will hopefully not be in the Big East anymore.

Looks like there's at least one state that knows their football. ^_^

Cheap shot alert!

So the ACC goes 0-2 in the BCS bowls and 2-6 overall in their bowl games. (And, I think, are now 2-14 in BCS bowl games.)

For a conference that's trying to make themselves look football-competent, they aren't doing such a great job at that. ACC football is a cute little story.

I'd like to know who were the 19% that DIDN'T vote for them

Rich Rod's former teams are doing pretty well the last few days.

Which is good news for the 2015 Arizona Wildcats!

Exactly-- one year to screw up the team, 2 years of hanging on for dear life, and then UA will be in the race for a good coach who can help them win again ;)

I know this dicks with the whole "RichRod is a horrible coach" narrative you Michigan Men have going, but the dude's been a success every other Division I stop in his career. I think he'll have Arizona doing just fine.

I've talked to a few friends who root for Arizona and the mood seems to be universally positive among their fanbase. Without having the spectre of blue-blood program expectations hanging over his head, he should do well.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that Penn State will name Patriots OC Bill O'Brien as their new head football coach.

If true, I wish him well. I do think that he will be a place holder for Munchak. Like Bob Wade was the Maryland hoops place holder for alumnus Gary Williams.

There are comparisons in being the coach following a "legendary college coach" which resulted in quick failure/disappointment:

Alabama: Perkins replaces Bryant

Georgia: Ray Goff replaces Dooley

Michigan: Moeller replaces Schembechler (it was not the record which hurt Gary, but the pressure of the job)

Ohio State: Bruce replaces Hayes (it was not the record, but non-football things which hurt him)

In what could be called the most modern era...

Florida: Zook replaces Spurrier

Nebraska: Solich replaces Osbourne (see Michigan)

O'Brien also has not head coaching experience, so that is another possible strike against him. There are many first time HC who seem to be highly successful (Bielema, Patterson, Bob Stoops, Mike Leach, Gundy) but only Alverez and possibly Spike Dykes could be talked about locally as a legend. It is better to be the second person and seen more of a program savior.

There are others who look out of sorts at top BCS schools (Alabama: Mike Shula, Mike DuBose; Oklahoma: John Blake, Gary Gibbs) probation or not.

We'll see what happens with O'Brien.

You knew there was zero chance of Penn State bringing in a big name head coach. The best they were going to do was some no name assistant who most people probably didn't even know existed until he became the PSU head coach and that's exactly what they got.

Its going to be a rough go for Penn State for awhile. I think they need to step back as a program and try to do as much community and PR work as possible to restore the name to what it was. I think its BS that the NCAA is not allowing any Penn State football player to transfer without sitting out a year. The rule has been waived before with programs put under abnormal conditions. Are you really going to fault somebody for saying they want to leave Penn State after all that has gone on in the past few months? I'll blame the media for that as well because that's something the NCAA should be held to the fire for and I don't see many media personalities who cover college football doing that. A few have spoken up about it but I haven't heard much.

But back to Penn State, they're doing pretty much the exact opposite of what I think they should be doing. They're basically going about their business as if nothing happened and I think its really going to bite them down the road. They may get away with it for a season or two, but once the Joe Pa recruits are gone I think your going to see a very dark era in Penn State football history take hold.

If they really think they can continue to be a major program after going through that without missing a beat, they did not 't read history very well.
